We are hosting our November volunteer orientation on Friday, November 10th at 11 am. If you’re interested in joining us, RSVP here!
Parkdale Food Centre’s unique group volunteer workshop brings people together to prepare a meal while considering their own roles in the larger food system. Interactive, thought-provoking, and empowering: participants build skills, knowledge, and connection by preparing a delicious meal from scratch together and participating in facilitated discussions on food issues and how we can take on an active role in reframing food charity paradigms using social justice strategies.
These paid workshops can be held either in-person or virtually and are tailored to each group based on their needs and desired outcomes.
Parkdale Food Centre only gets a small amount of funding from the City of Ottawa. To be able to share healthy food, warm meals, and support to all Neighbours, we love collaboration and support from people just like you and organizations just like yours.
One of the best ways to help is to organize an event on our behalf. This not only raises support but also raises awareness of food security needs in Ottawa.
